Gmail vs Hotmail - Which is better?

Not open for further replies.
Gmail but you give only 2 option but I like to say that 3rd option is best and have a lot of features.

Try Outlook, Used by staff like me in our office. 99% company use this.
  • Hotmail is a 19 years of age while Gmail is 11 years of age.
  • Hotmail is accessible in 106 worldwide while Gmail is accessible in 72 countries.
  • At present, Hotmail has more than 425 million clients and Gmail has more than 430 million clients.
  • Gmail is most well known as compared with Hotmail and its Alexa rank is 89 as on April 2015 and Alex rank of Hotmail is 492 as on April 2015.
  • Hotmail is more secure than Gmail.

Now you decide it yourself that which one is better :p
I've come to hate Hotmail and Yahoo off late because of their intrusive security settings. I'd travel to a different country and Hotmail/Yahoo force me to get a code from my alternate e-mail addresses, and since I'd use Yahoo for Hotmail of course that went into an irritating loop. What I then did was to change the alternate e-mail to a gmail, as gmail is relatively easier - although lately gmail is also making it more challenging to travel to a different country. Until recently when someone came up with a check script to test whether one's e-mail has been penetrated - the person who came up with the script is an Ozzie, and when I did some research on the script looks quite legit:


I then discovered that during an Adobe scandal thousands of users' e-mail addresses got hacked - which is why the Ozzie designed the above script. I found one of my hotmail addresses penetrated, but then discovered that when I had changed my alternate e-mail address that I had inadvertently secured the e-mail from further hacking as well. Looks like one should in addition to changing passwords regularly, also change the alternate e-mail addresses. This experience also taught me that Hotmail has a more stringent security policy. Not that it makes sense all of the time, I still hate it, but probably good to diversify one's e-mail accounts. :p
Hate to admit it but Gmail is my default due to how schizophrenic Hotmail/Outlook is becoming. I also use Inbox.com as a backup. I am actually shocked when I come across Aol and Yahoo email addresses still being used, but they must be doing something right all this much time later.
Gmail is easier to use but not very secured, this host should only for sharing normal document or getting newsletter.
Hotmail is better for working purposes.
gmail is better because its they are really quicker and lot of extra features we can access from single gmail id ie google anylytics, google webmater tools, gmail , hangout, :) for me gmail is the best
Personally, Gmail seems to be the best webmail service out there. Nobody seems to be using hotmail anymore.
